9780141019567: Vanity Fair

Becky Sharp and Amelia Sedley stand at the heart of this richly comic dissection of English society during the Napoleonic wars. Becky is charming and amoral and well equipped to fight for worldly success. Amelia is sweet and sentimental and longs for her worthless soldier lover, while the good but dull Dobbin stands patiently by. With a cast of characters grotesque, corrupt and downright wicked, the vast sweep of the novel allows Thackeray's wit and morality to shine a light into society's murkier corners.

Review:

"I do not say there is no character as well drawn in Shakespeare [as D'Artagnan]. I do say there is none that I love so wholly."--Robert Louis Stevenson "The lasting and universal popularity of The Three Musketeers shows that Dumas, by artlessly expressing his own nature in the persons of his heroes, was responding to that craving for action, strength and generosity which is a fact in all periods and all places."--Andree Maurois

Book Description:

'I think I could be a good woman if I had five thousand a year' Vanity Fair
